He was super proud of his letter... but he's still working on the "Smile for the Camera" thing. :)


Set Up:

I cut out the letter "F" then covered it with glue and let my toddler take his time placing each of the colored feathers along his "F".  He did a great job and I think he really enjoyed getting to feel and play with something soft and textured like feathers.  We did a couple of layers of glue as the feathers built up so we could have a more robust fire, but I don't know that it was necessary.

After we finished I tried to talk to my little guy about what fire was and even lit a candle to show him how the light moved and how he could feel the heat from it, but it kind of freaked him out.  Ha. So much for the safety lesson... I guess we'll work our way up to real fire, for now, we've got a great letter "F".
